ARMSTRONG, Christopher and H.V. NELLES. Monopoly's Moment : The Organization and Regulation of Canadian Utilities, 1830-1930 . Toronto: University of Toronto Press, (1988). Pp. (6),vii-xiii,(1),-393,(1). 8vo, printed browncard covers. "In this award-winning book, Armstrong and Nelles explore the struggle to build and regulate Canada's utilities and the response to the problem of monopoly inherent in these technologies. Using primary sources, many of them unique to this study, the authors have chosen examples from all regions of the country. They illustrate how regionally distinctive operations of utilities, which relied heavily on public ownership, created a diverse yet highly integrated utilities sector." - from the rear cover. Includes mentions of Nova Scotia Power, as well as much dealing with Halifax (including some references to the street railway and the strikes of 1913 and 1918), plus New Brunswick Electric Power Commission and Telephone Company points.
